With regard to your article "Birth-rate fall may close school" (March 4). I would like to point out that St John the Baptist School is not the only school in Brighton which pre-dates 1900. In fact the working section of the school dates from 1936, Eight of the nine classrooms in use, as well as the Infant Hall, were built in 1936: the kitchen in 1961.
